JOHANNESBURG – The South African men’s hockey team kicked off their African Championship campaign with a hard-fought 3-1 victory against Namibia in Stellenbosch yesterday.
SA will have to get their act together or see their hopes of earning Olympic qualification go up in flames against stronger opposition.
The Proteas made several entries into the circle, but could not convert their opportunities into points.
The teams were goalless for the first half before SA finally landed a couple of shots on target.
First game first win 💪🏼 good to get our #AfricanRoadToTokyo campaign off to a winning start 🇿🇦🏑 we will build on this momentum going in to tomorrow’s game against Zimbabwe. 📸 Thank you to @eunicevisagie for the images 🙌🏼🔥 pic.twitter.com/scGft3hqB8— SA Hockey Men (@SA_Hockey_Men) August 12, 2019
